Vintage Japanese Green Boro Scarf

$ 220.00

This one-of-a-kind cotton scarf is made from a strip of antique Japanese fabric dating from the late 19th century to the early 20th century with assorted fabric over patches.  Selvage edges and varied patterns combine to a create a scarf that will only improve with age and wear.  It bears a J. AUGUR USA hand painted stencil.

‘Boro’ translated from Japanese variously means: ragged, tattered, worn to shreds or pieces…. fundamentally it is ‘rag’. This peasant fabric was created, used, salvaged and reused by country folk over a century ago. Before ‘recycling’ became an environmental movement; hardship and impoverishment necessitated frugality, and every scrap of fabric found a purpose…again and again.
